The Palmyr Lucchini
Oddly, especially bearing in mind its colour scheme and the fact that it finished fourth at Donington Park and second at Spa, we haven’t shown an image of this car – until now.

Christophe Ricard (at the wheel, below) explains that “the ‘author’ of the flying elephant is a cartoonist friend of mine, who lives in Geneva. His name is Gerald Poussin.

“I asked him to do something "wild" in relation with the team (Palmyr comes from the palm tree symbol of the city of Nîmes near the circuit of Ledenon, where the team is based) and the elephant might have a relation with the fact that I am a bit heavy (90kg at my best) to race a car...!”

This really will be the last FIA SCC item here…
